Wow, never a truer song was written. Thanks for the reminder Mr Bowie. Life is full of change and no matter how much we resist, it is inevitable. A lesson I am learning very rapidly.
Barely are we into the year and my life has changed… and changed again. After a few months foray back into the regular working world, I find myself here again contemplating what is ahead for me. The universe is ever-so-slightly reminding me to be true to self, 6 score years revolving on the planet, you would think that I would realise that by now.
It has been a hectic few months with many highs and lows and I find myself in a mental limbo at present. A little hesitant to push myself, more content to sit and listen to my creative inner child who will eventually create some form of rebellion if I ignore her for too long.
My picture book publishing project has been taking a back seat for the past few months due to everyday work stresses and a lack of energy. But as fate has stepped in and redirected my thoughts, once again I am back at the drawing board, dreaming, working hard and receiving wonderful encouragement and support from my author and publisher.
A much needed daily boost now comes in the form of like-minded artists and entrepreneurs in an online initiative called Project Portfolio. It is the brainchild of picture book tutor, Nina Rycroft and brings together a wide variety of creative professionals and artists who share their experiences in a creative community. My arty mojo is feeling nurtured and inspired once more.
I need to learn to listen to my instincts and trust that things will work out. No matter whether good things or bad come my way, I know to wait for a moment as things always change.
